I am often accused of being a technology dolt. As a millennial, I have always been a bit of an outsider. I’m not into the idea of “hacking” or “taking over” other people’s lives, but sometimes it is easier to just take over and make it better than it is to try to fix or fix it. For me, I have always been a bit of a tech expert and a skeptic of the latest technology.
A bit of a tech expert and a skeptic? That’s so not me. I’ve been a huge nerd since I was a kid. I’ve loved watching movies about computers and video games and all the cool tech gadgets. I’ve even written a whole book about technology and I’m pretty sure I know everything there is to know about the technology that we take for granted.
My problem with technology is that, even though we take it for granted, we don’t know how to use it. My problem with technology is that, even though we take it for granted, we dont know how to use it.
Some of the more popular disruptive technology advisers have been so successful that they’ve become household names. They’re the guys who have been in charge of creating (or helping to create) lots of new and cool things for our lives that would be considered the next big thing in the tech world. So they’re the people you’d want to talk to if you’re trying to figure out what cool tech gadgets you should buy.
Although I love and respect technology and I am a fan of all the great tech advisers out there, I feel that there are some people who are not helpful.
That doesn’t surprise me at all. People like me have been through a lot of technology. Some of us have been in tech jobs for a while. The other stuff I hate is the tech people who think that everything should be made to work just so. I think they have a blind spot for the fact that the world they live in doesn’t work that way.
Well, you’ve got to respect the people who make their living selling hardware to the masses. I say that as someone who is currently working for a tech company. I’m not going to get into a lengthy discussion about how stupid it is to work for a company that makes gadgets that are useless to you. I’ve just got to say that I dont think that the average tech worker has a blind spot. They’ve seen it all. We all have.
Yes, we all have. Unfortunately, most of us dont realize it. So when they come up with a new gadget that makes it all better, it takes away from our attention span. They dont realize that we are already looking for new ways to deal with our problems. Because most of us are on autopilot, we don’t think to ourselves, “Damn, I wish there was something better I could do.
I think a lot of people are just afraid of technology because of the way it can disrupt their lives. However, people who do have a blind spot are often the ones who are most disruptive. If we all had a way to see that we were already looking for better ways, we could make a change, right? Not just for ourselves but for those around us. For example, I hear all the time that computers need to be fixed. Well, I think that is a red herring.
It’s possible that computers are fine, but they really need to be fixed more than anything else. When your computer crashes, it’s not that big of a deal. You can just take it to a computer repair shop and get a new one. But if your computer crashes and you don’t have the money to get a new one, you are going to become an incredibly frustrated and angry individual. You can’t just assume that your computer will be fixed because it’s broken.
